"I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage." - Roald Dahl
Dear parents and guardians, The students should be done reading their realistic fiction books. I am proud of the many students who chose to read two books, not just one.
This week students are drafting their realistic fiction narratives in their writer's journal. They should have the entire story written by Wednesday, September 20. Having the story written will allow them to meet with writing partners and revise the story to help better show what matters to the character and how that character is changing.
Students will also be working on adding dialogue to their stories and learning or reviewing how to punctuate it properly.
Progress Reports went home Friday, September 15. Please email me if you have any questions about your child's grade.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Sincerely, Mrs. Becky Leffler GMSS seventh grade language arts email: email@example.com homework portal: lefflerr.weebly.com
